Lost Senses at Guest Projects

This Monday 7 August, I am presenting Four (2017), a new performance at Guest Projects, London as part of the opening of Lost Senses a programme of events and workshops curated by Linda Rocco. This new work with four bodies in response to the peculiar architecture of the space, uses a score by Mira Calix and the building’s supporting pillars as starting point for this new live work. Featuring dancers: Elina Akhmetova, Iris Chan, Piedad Seiquer and Lucy Suggate.

The evening is 6-9pm, and performance will be around 7.15pm, followed by a live set by Lawrence Lek and Clifford Sage.

LOST SENSES is a living space for encounters, open every day to everyone.

Revisiting the exhibition as format and exploring the gallery space as a fluid cultural site, artists and practitioners will work in close relation with people reorganising the self’s relation to perception.

The one-month campus wants to create collective experiences and ways to actively participate in everyday life, remembering that embodiment is not just textual but consumed by a world filled with smells, textures, sights, sounds and tastes. Generating a re-opening of senses exploring otherness, lost and participation, everyday life will be critically tested as a never static reality made of bodies, time and experiences. Mainly working as a hub for thinkers and a space for reverie, LOST SENSES will offer daily live experiences to engage diverse audiences through meaningful inter(actions), opening up reflections on a wider scale through processes of documentation and mediation.

The campus will use Live art to explore the now: to reorganise, open and reshape senses, generating reflections on our own identities, our communities and beyond.
